How To Transfer Sky+HD Recorded Program To PC. Help!

Can anyone help? How To Transfer Sky+HD Recorded Program To PC.

 

I have recorded/saved programs on my Sky+HD box which I need to save on my laptop and/or upload to my YouTube channel. How can I do this?

 

All help appreciated. Thanks.

You can do this, in real time, if your laptop has a/v capture hardware and software installed. You then connect a cable between the composite video and stereo outputs at the back of your Sky box (yellow, red and white phono sockets) and the equivalent inputs of the capture device and use the software to capture the recording as you play it back.

Thanks for your advice but this sounds too technical for me.

 

I have a laptop with a wireless internet connection. I have some "already" recorded programs on my Sky box which I need to transfer or save on my laptop. Is there an easy way to do this. I am disabled so unable to fiddle with cables etc.

 

Thanks.

Unfortunately no. The only easier way is to connect your Sky box to a DVD recorder (or video recorder) and again, record in real time. There's no way to do this wirelessly, or via the ethernet connection.

If you can stretch to an Archos 605 or later with a docking station you can connect straight to sky box. You have to record in real time but that's not a prob, also you need to install the 'Cinema' plug in on the archos unit. This enables the sky data to be converted automatically to .avi format. Hope this helps.
